on what lines on my return should the amount entered in box 10 on a T5007 appear to reduce your taxable income.

In my case, I see entries on line 144, 229 (employment expenses) and line 250 (other deductions) which has reduced my taxable income by twice the amount entered in box 10 in the T5007.  This has increased my refund substantially but unfortunately I believe it is an error.  How can remove one of the entries (either on line 229 or 250).  The reason this happened is because Workers Compensation paid my employer and my employer in turn paid me as if I was still at work.  My employment income on my T4 did not change for the year and I received a T5007 in my name for the wages they paid my employer.

People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
